No, basicly we want shower head gone and connection to hook up coil garden hose to. Would like to use to hook to black tank rinse when at full hook up.

Most hardware stores should have a brass adapter that's 1/2 NPT to 3/4 water hose...that's what I've used.

This is a commercial purpose built replacement for doing exactly what you want to do. I have not used it personally, but it looks like a good solution.

Wouldn't a brass quick disconnect work? Screw the female end on the outside shower side and the male end on the water hose.

When using the adapter....did you change directions? Mine is pointing up and it would be awkward to attach a hose? Any pics of what you guys have done?
